Synopsis

The only places I have posted the story and allow it to exist are on RoyalRoad, Scribblehub, and my Patreon.

So the world ended. Whoopsie? We didn’t even see it coming. Quite literally as it came at us faster than the speed of light. Don’t worry though, it got better. Also, I am not joking about the world ending. Most people say that and mean humans are inconvenienced for some reason. Nope, all matter disintegrated at the atomic scale there for a few moments. Apparently the local universe wasn’t actually stable? Don’t ask me to go into too much detail. It would require both of us to have a few more college degrees than sense and I at least lack them (both the degrees and the sense). Anyway, the energy/matter/wibbly wobbly strings were at a local minimum and not the universal minimum. Basically, what we took for sea level was actually a nice little mountain lake and when the dam busted so did, well, everything.
Now here is where things go a bit off track with what normal meant before. You see magic is real, qi is real, gods are real. Not on old Earth mind you but souls don’t pay much attention to time and space so we dreamed of it. In fact, the closer the shift in reality got to Earth the closer our dreams got to the new reality. This is basically me tip toeing around the fact that it was a ‘System Apocalypse’. Reality became a video game, I became a dungeon, and this is my story.

-----

Doyle Huxley just wanted a normal life but as the above might clue you in on that just isn’t in the cards. He gets to experience a “Path Based System Apocalypse” and some early paths he takes, both literally and figuratively, lead to him becoming a dungeon.

The aim is to release chapters once a week on Friday

Cursing will be avoided and no naughty adult action will take place in the story.

      An absolute utter slog. You're basically reading about a guy turned dungeon, people watching. I skipped to chapter 68 to see if things sped up, but nope. 68 chapters, 2 dungeon floors. This story uses a whole lot of words to say a whole lot of nothing. This story should be avoided because it is so mind numbingly boring.

      There is no plot. It's one giant info dump that for some reason wants to drag out the info dump for every single chapter.

      The only redeeming quality seems to be decent grammar. Now if you'll excuse me, I have to tear my eyeballs out since this guy ruined an entire genre for me.

      Very high quality story. The grammar is spot on.

      The writing style can seem like a series of info dump at times (mostly at the beginning) but it is not overwhelming and quickly becomes part of the experience.

      The characters feel real, the world and setting are complex and perfectly make sense.
      We are always kept wondering what they will do or future path they will get.

      I liked this work, although it was somewhat protracted. In my opinion, the 4.5 is too low and at the same time correct. I have seen works with a similar rating much worse, no, mostly they are just awful. I very rarely open work with a rating below 4.6 and this was one of such exceptions. Usually a score of 4.5 and below means a huge hole in the plot, cardboard characters, poor depth and many other scary things that experienced readers are afraid of. They can be together or separately, as luck would have it. I don't compromise when there is a hole in the plot, the world is poorly designed, or the characters are cardboard. However, there is one exception, and that is stretching. The main complaint is that in the thirtieth chapter, he is not yet a demigod. For me, there are no obvious problems here other than being stretched, I have enough patience and a slow pace provides a more complete immersion. For those who, like me, are not afraid of this, read it with pleasure. This is why I say the 4.5 rating is both too low and too correct. Thanks google translator
